Maryland 2020 Player Rankings Preview (Consistency over Substance)
The updated 2020 ranking seen a lot of movement as we have gotten into the new season. This time around we have leaned more toward consistency of play over college potential even though they can be the same at times. New players added to the list and some have taken a considerable leap. Here is a preview of the first 2020 ranking of the new year.
At the top:
Angel Reese (St. Frances Academy) has shown consistency throughout her high school career from her first game as a freshman. She is a walking double-double machine that can carry a team through an entire season. The Maryland commit will be lacing her sneakers up in College Park next season for the University of Maryland and is expected to continue to produce on the next level.
Kaylah Ivey (Riverdale Baptist) has been clutch this season and has risen her high level play to “elite” status. The Boston College commit has been nearly automatic from the three and the free throw line. She has embraced the roll of point guard and has found a balance of scoring and getting her teammates involved with her great vision. She is the main reason that the Crusaders are among the top teams in the DMV rankings.
Aaliyah Pitts (Bishop McNamara) has emerged in dramatic fashion. Formally ranked in Prep Girls Hoops Virginia before her transfer, Pitts has joined one of the nations most talented teams and has risen to stardom. She low key produces and can go unnoticed until you glance at the score sheet. She can fill it up from the three, attack off the dribble and go down in the block and mix things up. She will be a major piece as the Mustangs look to win the WCAC title.
On the Rise:
Chetanna Nweke (Stone Ridge) and Taylor Webster (Georgetown Visitation) both made leaps in the top ten and top twenty respectively. Both have left their mark at the She Got Game Classic which gave their stock a major boost.
Stay tuned for the latest Maryland/D.C. rankings update.
